It's interesting because just about every rebel on here is saying imperial gr snipers are the reason imps are dominating conflicts. If that were true, then we would see it in the data. We don't see it, we haven't seen it and we won't see it because the claim is completely false.
Sorry OP, I know you want armory discussions elsewhere so I'll respond to the rest of DR's post;
I'm not sure if average medals per win is even a good indication of balance. Imperials are primarily hitting dev bases during conflicts. We are pretty much guaranteed 3 stars per attack and ~15 medals. Rebels face tough bases and occasionally faceplant. Sure, tough bases can offer high medals but this is more of an exception than a standard.
It's hard to conclude medals are a state of balance in the game when the factions experience completely different offensive environments.
You must have presumed when I said balance, that it implied unit balance. Bad assumption. When I said balance, it meant in an overall sense.
Of course match making matters in game experience, in how easier it was for IMP to play and to gain medal. You said it yourself.
As game stats doesn’t track losses, of all the stats available to us, medals per win represents the best overall status as it is the RESULT of PVP, and everything like match making, losses (results in negative medals), base difficulty level, dev bases, armory level, are all partially factored in one way or another.
(last post on this, to respect the OP wish of not debate on game balance)
I don't think my post left any room assumptions. Bad assumption on your part
All I've said is that the data clearly and unequivocally show that rebels are doing much better than imperials on defense. They are also dominating squad wars (despite all the imbalanced matchmaking threads they write). You're not arguing with me, you're arguing with the numbers and that's just silly.
And those def wins are out of how many defenses? If you can't answer that question, then you can't really show anything.
I know that individual players have been able to find out the number of def and attacking losses for their acct. But those numbers aren't on the ksod site.
